I grew up in a family where cooking was important - one set of grandparents owned a cafe, the other grandmother was a fantastic cook & hostess and my mom was a wicked good baker. I ran from cooking as hard and fast as I could.
Then I met my husband - who is a superb cook. He grew up with…

As we faced 2011, I suggested to my husband that we buy a slow cooker as a way to control our eating by having more home-cooked meals. I decided that if so many friends on Facebook were talking about their delicious meals in their status updates that
we were missing out.
So why on earth…

As I had promised my friend when she turned 40 and was expecting her first child this June (baby girl Tegan arrived safe & healthy) - she would get 10 hours of work from me as she so directed. She chose to take her 10 hours in frozen meals for her and
her husband to eat as they adapted to…

We had a picnic to attend on Sunday. I made rosemary lemonade at the request of the group and was asked to bring a dessert. As people may know fromy blog posts, I am a far more hesitant baker than cook. I come from a line of women with incredible baking
skills - perfect cakes, pies, etc. …

Last weekend we bought 2 packages of fresh mozzarella on a BOGO deal. And since I live in fear it will go to waste (silly me-cheese in my house go to waste?) I decided to pick up some cherry tomatoes & chickpeas for a pasta recipe that uses fresh mozz.
Then I would be ready later this…

I just returned from a 3 day vacation with my husband, father, sister and bro-in-law. We went back to a cabin resort that we visited last year. Prior to leaving, the great cooking debate was heated.
My brother in law insisted that it could not be vacation with cooking, hence we would eat…

This past weekend, I made as gifts for 2 friends a jar of strawberry chutney and Cranberry bog bars. Bog bars are classic dessert bar with the oatmeal/butter crust, a layer of whole fruit cranberry sauce and then more oatmeal mixture sprinkled on top. Getting that first layer…

Last Sunday we had a potluck after church. The mission team had returned from Guatemala and in place of the sermon, we heard about their trip. And the potluck was to rejoice in their safe return & thank them for their work. Now, last week, my husband was in the hospital for…

This week my dad had to have some day surgery & testing done where he lives so I went 100 miles south to be with him. Since my mother died six years ago, we have steadily been cleaning out the house at his request so there are not many nooks & crannies unexplored. But I had been…

Last night was a birthday dinner at the apartment of some friends. This group has been dubbed "the family"...the six of us range in age from 54 to 28. Kelli volunteered to host and make the meal. This is no small thing because I think Kelli downplays her ability to cook. …
